Taking a Break

Posted by mcm0704 on June 29, 2018 |

I will be offline for the most part during the next week and a half. First to spend a few days with my kids over the weekend celebrating my birthday without attachments to electronics. They have arranged everything for the party, and I don’t even know the venue, or what is planned for Saturday. I […]

Mysteries That Matter

Posted by mcm0704 on June 27, 2018 |

It’s not even summer yet, and already Texas is sizzling. It got to nearly 100 degrees the other day, and I’m sure that it is pretty hot in many other places. Perhaps it’s  time for some cherry lemonade. It’s easy to make, and I have plenty, so help yourself. If you’d like the recipe, you […]

#Fridayreads – Excerpt From a Humorous Memoir

Posted by mcm0704 on June 22, 2018 |

Now that I am back living in a neighborhood and not out in the country anymore, this excerpt from my humorous memoir, A Dead Tomato Plant And A Paycheck, is particularly meaningful. I did like my country home that was surrounded by pine trees, so there was no real lawn to deal with. The rest […]

Great Summer Evenings

Posted by mcm0704 on June 20, 2018 |

Before moving on to the guest post by Slim Randles I want to share something special from last Sunday. The Let’s Play Beginner Drama Camp at the Winnsboro Center for the Arts was dedicated to me, and I must say it was a great honor, as well as a huge surprise. I was the Theatre […]

Posted by mcm0704 on June 18, 2018 |

Good Monday morning everyone. Before moving on to a bit of a snarky commentary, I want to share a pretty picture – just because. Looking at pretty things can bring a sense of peace and calm, just like a good belly laugh can. So I hope the picture and the jokes get your week off […]

As promised on Monday, here is another excerpt from A Dead Tomato Plant and a Paycheck, my humorous memoir. Back when I was writing the weekly newspaper column, from which most of this book is taken, I didn’t shy away from poking fun at anyone, including myself. Today, let’s share some chocolate, chocolate chip muffins. […]
